Menino's Massachusetts Chicken Sandwich Stimulus!

by: Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

Wed Aug 01, 2012 at 13:16:56 PM EDT

Mayor Menino's threat to ban Chick-Fil-A has had an unintended consequence.  It is driving business to at least one of only two outlets in Massachusetts.  The Chick-Fil-A at the Burlington Mall.  At lunch time today there were over 500 people in a steady line for moist chicken sandwiches.  

They are taking part in what Mike Huckabee has termed, Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.  I'd like to think of it more as the "Tom Menino Massachusetts Chicken Sandwich Stimulus".

UPDATE:  Video from the scene...

A reader sent in this video.  It took more than a minute to walk from the front of the line to the end of the line.

Are you referring to the Nuns? (5.00 / 1)

Ed Markey is now the official 'cheapest' man on earth.  1.5 percent to charity while the average American gave 3 times as much...

This is such a beautiful thing.
And doesn't feel right, feel more conservative to be part of a BUYcott rather than a boycott?

I was there from 11:30 to 12:45... (0.00 / 0)
...and the place was packed.

I had never been to Chick-fil-a before yesterday.  It was everything I had heard it was; good chicken, pleasant staff, nice people.

There was a guy handing out $20 Chick-fil-a gift cards to random people in line.

There was niceness from one end of the food court to the other.  People were happy to be there, even when the line reached around the corner to the escalators.  Talking with the woman at the table next to me, I learned she drove 2 1/2 hours to get there and she was thrilled.  

The onle thing I witnessed that wasn't good was some dumbass jumping in front of a woman who was trying to take a picture of her family.  The silly bastard jumped up and down, giving the thumbs down sign as he landed.  The woman reacted with the face of a mother who had just seen her child do something really stupid.  It embarassed the guy and it was priceless.  She didn't utter a word.  He slinked off with his moronic friends, only having the courage to snicker when he was a sufficient distance from the nice lady and her family.

I suspect the "kiss-in" tomorrow will be just as silly.

Yesterday, mall staff let it be known that mall policy prohibited filming, recording and the handing out of literature.  Let's see if mall staff will put up with the "kiss-in".

"Gee, I had no idea..."  Simple J. (Festus) Malarkey  

Hey V! I was the other guy.... (5.00 / 1)
...using my iPhone to take pics and videos!  Wish I knew, would have said hi!


Follow me on Twitter?  Sure, why not.

Working a half day tomorrow so I can go. (0.00 / 0)
I'm ordering the Chicken Cordon BleuMassGroup Sandwich. ; )

Ya get it?  Chicken Cordon BleuMassGroup . . .

Obviously I'm making a play on words here combining  "Chicken Cordon Bleu" and "BlueMassGroup" and turning the two into a really stupid joke.  : )

What can I say ... I saw the stats EaBo pointed to and I see "Chrismatth" from BMG in the "Active Users" link ... I had to say it.
